Get ready to rock, Australia! McManus Entertainment in association with F1 Rocks is thrilled to announce the return of rock icon Lenny Kravitz to Australia in March 2012. Marking his first concert appearance in the country in 18 years, Lenny will be joined by Irish chart-toppers The Cranberries, and Aussie rockers Wolfmother. In addition to playing Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl during the Australian Grand Prix weekend, Lenny Kravitz, The Cranberries and Wolfmother will also be playing shows in Sydney, Wollongong, Brisbane and Perth.
"Not only will rock fans around Australia get to enjoy these three great artists, highlights of Lenny's performance will be broadcast around the world via the F1 Rocks network to a huge international audience. It's been 18 years since Lenny Kravitz last toured Australia. Lenny is an international superstar and it's a pleasure to bring him back here. And it's perfect timing for those that are at the Grand Prix in Melbourne. Fans can conveniently walk over from the track to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl and enjoy a great night of rock in Melbourne," says promoter Andrew McManus.
Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk.
"I am excited to return to Australia after so many years away," says Lenny. "It's going to a great show and I cannot wait to see all my fans there. We are going to bring it!"
The Cranberries, fronted by Dolores O'Riordan, lit up the charts around the world for more than a decade with classics such as Linger, Dreams and Zombie, Free To Decide, When You're Gone, Salvation, Ode To My Family and Ridiculous Thoughts.
In 2007 Aussie rockers Wolfmother won a GRAMMY Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their single Woman. This was followed up with multiple other ARIA Award wins and their self titled album being certified 5 x Platinum.
